Sarahah: All you need to know about first secret messaging app

Once downloaded, users need to set up an account on the Sarahah app to start receiving messages.

"This app will help enhance your areas of strength, strengthen areas for Improvement at your workplace and with friends, it will help improve your friendship by discovering your strengths and areas for improvement and let your friends be honest with you". Sarahah, which is "frankly" or "expressly" in Arabic, serves as a platform for exchanging messages.

They can't as long as you don't share your messages.

To begin with, it is required to create a profile by installing the Sarahah app on either Android or iOS device.

You can either allow anyone to post a missive or restrict that to registered users. The messaging app that primarily focuses on privacy, was developed and introduced by Saudi Arabia-based ZainAlabdin Tawfiq back in June. "Teens want to connect [.] but anonymous apps allow them to be connected and somewhat disconnected (because no one knows who they are) at the same time", Garcia said.

It is free to download and like most social media apps asks users to create a profile with a username, email ID and a password to keep communications secure. Here's where the anonymity of Sarahah becomes not so fun: people can sometimes be mean. It is also possible to register via the web by navigating to sarahah.com domain.

Instead of the front axle, however, two of those motors are on the rear axle and they give the vehicle all-wheel drive. Both models use a 3.5-liter direct-injected V6, though the Sport Hybrid backs that up with three electric motors.

The idea behind the Sarahah is simple. However, there is no way to reply to those messages, and you can't find out sender's name unless he includes it. Well there's an app that will let you deliver some criticism constructively.

Then he chose to release it for personal use, so that friends and non-friends alike could tell each other what they truly thought of one another, anonymously. Even without logging in, people can visit your profile and leave messages, anonymously. "New messages appear in a feed on the app, which can be favourited, forwarded or deleted".

Media reports indicate that there have been several cases of cyberbullying through the app which is reflected in the review comments by users on the app's page in Google Play Store. These options can be found under settings.

Here are answers to 5 questions that you might be having about the Sarahah application.

Sarahah won't disclose the identity of the logged-in senders to users except with their approval. Another logical feature would be the option to reply, which can then be used by the recipient to conduct his or her investigation. Currently, there's no way to respond to a message, but according to Sarahah's website, they are "studying this option".
